Buddhist Global Relief provides grants for global hunger relief programs, including programs in education, farming, and women’s livelihood — all aiming toward food security. These programs offer girls in Cambodia and India the chance to go to school; promote sustainable farming in Cambodia, Vietnam, and Kenya; spread the benefits of breastfeeding to infants in drought-stricken Niger; provide produce to food centers in the U.S.; and give hot daily meals to hungry kids in Haiti.
